Sunmarke Life

Your child’s transformation starts here….today. 

Welcome to Sunmarke School – a school that you and your child will love, and one where we will lead your child to great heights.

Fortes Education schools have been providing a world-class education to students in the UAE for over 35 years, and here at Sunmarke School we offer a premium education that is, quite simply, amazing.

At the heart of our approach is our embrace of Positive Education. This paradigm shift in global education was founded and spearheaded in the Middle East by Sunmarke School and we are the only school in the UAE recognised by the International Positive Education Network.

As parents, we all understand that our children will face many daunting challenges in the future and that academic excellence alone will not be sufficient to ensure their success or happiness. However, through our whole-school Positive Education (PosEd) culture, we have become global leaders in implementing a holistic approach to excellence, where outstanding academic outcomes are nurtured and underpinned by the science of positive psychology, wellbeing and happiness.

We cultivate a sense of purpose, character strengths, positive emotions and supportive relationships to enable children to not only become tomorrow’s leaders but also happier, healthier, more resilient and successful individuals. In short, Sunmarke students not only shine academically, they flourish, and are equipped for life.

Our school offers unrivalled facilities from the very youngest learners to the young adults preparing for university, with a perfect pathway for your child, whatever their interests. Whether ultimately your child pursues IB, A-Level or BTEC, we have a pathway to ignite their imagination and hone their skills.

We have achieved an overall ‘Very Good’ rating from KHDA in 2018-19 with several ‘Outstanding’ elements, a feat that very few schools have achieved within the region, and we are delighted with what we have accomplished in our 3 years of opening. Our unprecedented rise to success is a sign of what makes us unrivalled in the UAE. By empowering children to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, socially confident and inspired learners, we are committed to every child achieving their dreams and ambitions.

By exploring this website, you can experience a snapshot of the vibrancy and spirit of Sunmarke, but to see what amazing really looks like, we encourage you to come and visit our school where you can talk to our senior leadership and admissions teams to learn more.

I look forward to welcoming you to Sunmarke soon.
